Just used Duplicate Component for the 1st time...
an hours worth of placing redundant components done in 40 seconds!!!
Thanks to the SE Team for this incredible gem!
Glad you like this one. For some assembly scenarios this one can be hugely productive.
I'd encourage everyone to give it a try.
- Open an ASM with the same component placed in multiple locations.
They can be at any orienation or position. (Not patterned)
- Place a new component on one these components. Let's say a bolt.
- Duplicate this component to all other locations.
This is one of my favorites for ST7.
I used that tool recently and it saved a lot of time! I have 12 plastic rub strips in different locations on an aluminum frame. Each strip has 3 holes. I placed screws in one strip then used the duplicate part to put screws in the other 11 and it worked like magic!
Thanks for sharing & reminding me that this existed Matt......I recall seeing a video of this being used somewhere along the way, but have not recalled it, until now.
I know both Pat & I will be raising a frothy beverage over this gem after work, having put this to use today!
Thanks to SE developement team.

Good morning everyone,
For me Duplicate Component is the single biggest improvement in ST7. For designs that look like the image below this is an awesome tool. I can not imagine doing machine design without it.
